    If you make the user a local administrator, they can unlock the server.

    Not the most desirable solution, but it would work.

    Subject: Password Protected Screen Saver and Administrative Password

     
     
    Does someone know a way to allow a normal user to release a server
    password protected screen-saver without giving the user the
    administrator password?

    I need this so that third-party support can access our server via
    GoToMyPC when I am not there. The password protected screen-saver
    blocks them from remote access to fix problems. I cannot always be
    on-site to assist by supplying the screen-saver password.
